    No. Secession is unconstitutional. This has been proven time and time again. That means any state.

    #1. there MUST be a general referendum in the state.

    #2. I would think such referendum would require a super-majority of 60%.

    #3. all state legislatures would have to then vote on allowing secession. again, 60% of the states should approve.

    if they get all that...then sure...addios muchacho.

    It is now. It wasn't in 1860.

    Curious. How is it unconstitutional now when it wasn't in 1860?

    And yet you've still refused to prove it.
    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    The 10th amendment doesnt give a state the right to secede.

    Because in 1869, the Supreme Court ruled secession illegal.
